Slieve Gullion Forest Park – Giant’s Lair and Adventure Playpark

View through to the Giants Castle at Slieve Gullion

Slieve Gullion is described as Ireland’s most mystical mountain and we were able to design and then build much of that modern day magic, but ensure it looked like it had been there from before the time that time forgot. We started with storyboards and some beautiful themed drawings to get the dreams flowing. Let’s start with the end and look at their promotional video now it is all complete and ready to play.

And look at the illustrations that inspired it.

The site itself was beautiful but incredibly difficult to access as it was on the side of a mountain.
